Speed Keto is a way to speed up ketosis by utilizing a low carbohydrate, ketogenic diet with revolutionary fat-burning techniques to achieve the fastest weight loss results possible. Some of these Speed Keto techniques are used to get you back into ketosis in 24 hours.
Speeding up keto (Speed Keto) is not something you have to pay for. There is a ton of Keto Diet Information for free on the internet.
Whether we’re just starting out, or have been doing Keto for a while, we all want our fat loss to be as quick and easy as possible. Let’s face it, patience is not our strength.
We want it all and we want it now. These are advanced tips so beware, they might cause rapid fat burning.
“Synergy- The interaction or cooperation of two or more organizations, substances, or other agents to produce a combined effect greater than the sum of their separate effects.”Websters dictionary
The following speed keto tips might not be new, but when some of them are done together in a synergistic fashion, they can really speed up the ketosis process. This fat loss synergism is also a great way to redouble your efforts and push through the dreaded weight-loss stall or Keto Plateau.
Fasting and resistance training can speed keto
Working out in a fasted state has numerous benefits. First of all, resistance training fully empties the glycogen stores in your muscles. If you weren’t in ketosis before you started, you almost certainly will be when you are done. Secondly, resistance training and intermittent fasting have both been shown to stimulate the release of human growth hormone (HGH).
This study published in PubMed showed a 44% increase in human growth hormone (HGH) after progressive resistance training. Fasting is the best way to put you in ketosis and speed up the fat-burning process.
In addition, this study on HGH showed a 24-hour fast raised HGH levels an average of 1,300 percent in women, and nearly 2,000 percent in men. Now imagine the HGH increase you could get when you fast and do resistance training together.
It’s never too late to lift weights (resistance training), in fact the older you get the more important it becomes. This study I found on Pubmed titled: Resistance training for health and performance concludes these benefits:
- Reduces body fat
- Increases basal metabolic rate
- Decreases blood pressure and the cardiovascular demands to exercise
- Improves blood lipid profiles, glucose tolerance, and insulin sensitivity
- Increases muscle mass
- Relieves lower back pain
- Improves sleep
- Increases bone mineral density (1% to 3% increase)
Weight lifting will definitely help speed keto and these keto muscle building supplements might give you the boost you need to take your keto diet to the next level.
Medium-chain triglycerides (MCT) oil, carnitine, and black coffee:
Carnitine is an amino acid that helps shuttle fat into the mitochondria to be used as energy. Ingested together, they can give you quick energy and a sustained energy boost, while not causing any glucose or insulin increase.
Taking all three together will really speed up keto.
Prebiotic fiber and probiotics will speed keto by improving your digestion.
Many on the ketogenic diet struggle to eat enough vegetables to stay under their 20-30 gram daily carbohydrate requirement. Without a steady supply of prebiotic fiber and probiotic bacteria, general health can decline. Science is starting to emerge just how important it is to have healthy intestinal flora.
Not only is it vital for the immune system, but it’s the secret to regular bowel movements. Prebiotics feed the probiotics and both are needed to maintain the bacterial balance in the gut.
Eating fermented foods like Natto (fermented soybeans), Kimchi, drinking beet kvass and keto kefir (milk) as part of your keto diet plan can speed up keto. Adding prebiotics and probiotics can strengthen your immune system and improve your feeling of well being.
This study from the National Institute of Health shows that drinking kefir for eight weeks significantly improved β-cell function and insulin resistance.
It’s called the brain-gut axis and it’s an emerging area of nutritional science. Reference this article on The Brain-Gut-Microbiome Axis. The gut microbiota performs a critical role in the modulation of satiety signals (feeling full) and eating behaviors.
Go to bed early and take Forskolin on an empty stomach
Forskolin shows a lot of promise. This article titled “Forskolin for weight loss” shows that just 250 mg of Forskolin, two times per day for 12-weeks resulted in weight loss and increased testosterone production.
Taking 250 mg of Forskolin at night on an empty stomach and another 250 mg in the morning when you wake up could really speed keto.
Getting plenty of sleep is essential in lowering cortisol levels. “If your goal is to lose fat, skipping sleep is like poking sticks in your bicycle wheels,” said study director Plamen Penev, MD, Ph.D., assistant professor of medicine at the University of Chicago.
Dr. Penev’s study showed that lack of sleep reduced fat loss by 55 percent.
Going to bed on an empty stomach lowers insulin, and insulin stops the release of Human Growth Hormone.
HGH helps our bodies burn fat and preserve muscle and most of our HGH release occurs during the period of Stage 3 sleep. Stage 3 sleep occurs about an hour after you first fall asleep. It is estimated that as much as 75 percent of our daily HGH is released during that time.
So if you go to bed on an empty stomach, your insulin will be low and you will be in a more favorable position to get the maximum benefit of HGH.
Detox and regenerate your mitochondria with Co-Enzyme Q10 and PQQ.
Co-Enzyme Q10 and PQQ are synergistic supplements that have shown to rejuvenate the mitochondria. Co-Enzyme is essential for ATP (energy) production via the mitochondrial, it scavenges free radicals and prevents oxidative damage.
Drugs such as statins and metformin have shown to deplete Co-Enzyme Q10. This study shows that Co-Enzyme Q10 improves liver functions tests and helps lessen the severity of fatty liver disease.
An efficient liver is important to speed up keto because it’s the liver’s job to convert fat into ketones (ketogenesis). This study I found on Pubmed shows ketogenesis can reverse non-alcoholic reverse fatty liver disease (NAFLD).
PQQ (pyrroloquinoline quinone) Is an obscure sub-type of B vitamin and is found in dietary sources. Here is a list of keto diet-friendly foods that are high in PQQ.
- Natto (fermented soybeans
- Miso (bean paste)
- Broad bean
- Green pepper
- Green tea
- Oolong tea
- Tofu (bean curd)
In this study, PQQ supplementation resulted in significant decreases in inflammation as seen in plasma C-reactive protein test. It also enhanced mitochondria-related functions.
The potential health benefits of PQQ are pretty amazing. PQQ can regenerate new mitochondria with its growth-promoting activity. It also has an anti-diabetic effect, anti-oxidative action, and neuroprotective function.
This very lengthy study demonstrated that oral administration of PQQ (20 mg per day) for two weeks improved impaired glucose tolerance in type 2 diabetics. PQQ clearly shows that it can be useful to improve insulin sensitivity in type 2 diabetics.
Improving insulin sensitivity is the key to the success of the ketogenic diet. The beauty of PQQ is dosed as low as 20 mg a day still produces health benefits.
Eat for nutritional benefit, not taste to speed keto
The speed keto diet should include as many of the keto superfoods as possible. I will admit that the taste of some of these “superfoods” might not be that great.
For example, Natto isn’t the best tasting food in the world, but Natto’s nutritional benefits are nothing short of amazing.
We all want to speed up keto and have quick weight loss, but the ultimate goal should be lifelong good health. Eating keto superfoods and antioxidants can improve your chances of aging gracefully.
If you are just starting out on the Keto Diet you might want to read this “Keto Explained” article before you try speed keto. Start out slowly with traditional keto before you jump right into advanced speed keto techniques will prevent the keto flu.
